Water and Wastewater Treatment: A Guide for the Nonengineering Professional, Second
Lauded for its engaging, highly readable style, the best-selling first edition became the premier guide for nonengineers involved in water and wastewater treatment operations. Water and Wastewater Treatment: A Guide for the Nonengineering Professional, Second Edition continues to provide a simple, nonmathematical account of the unit processes used to treat both drinking water and wastewater.Completely revised and expanded, this second edition adds new material on technological advances, regulatory requirements, and other current issues facing the water and wastewater industries. Using step-by-step, jargon-free language, the authors present all the basic unit processes involved in drinking water and wastewater treatment. They describe each unit process, the function of the process in water or wastewater treatment, and the basic equipment used in each process. They also explain how the processes fit together within a drinking water or wastewater treatment system and discuss the fundamental concepts that constitute water and wastewater treatment processes as a whole.Avoiding mathematics, chemistry, and biology, the book includes numerous illustrations for easy comprehension of concepts and processes. It also contains chapter summaries and an extensive glossary of terms and abbreviat...

Wastewater Engineering: Treatment and Resource
Wastewater Engineering: Treatment and Resource Recovery, 5/e is a thorough update of McGraw-Hill's authoritative book on wastewater treatment. No environmental engineering professional or civil or environmental engineering major should be without a copy of this book - describing the rapidly evolving field of wastewater engineering technological and regulatory changes that have occurred over the last ten years in this discipline, including: a new view of a wastewater as a source of energy, nutrients and potable water; more stringent discharge requirements related to nitrogen and phosphorus; enhanced understanding of the fundamental microbiology and physiology of the microorganisms responsible for the removel of nitrogen and phosphorus and other constituents; an appreciation of the importance of the separate treatment of return flows with respect to meeting more stringent standards for nitrogen removal and opportunities for nutrient recovery; increased emphasis on the treatment of sludge and the management of biosolids; increased awareness of carbon footprints impacts and greenhouse gas emissions, and an emphasis on the development of energy neutral or energy positive wastewater plants through more efficient use of chemical and heat energy in wastewater. This revision contains a s...

Lumpy Water Math: Math for Wastewater
Lumpy Water Math was written to help wastewater treatment plant operators and collection system operators with the basic problem solving ability needed to evaluate and control these systems. This understanding will help the operator use math in day-to day operation as well as help prepare for certification exams. The math will be helpful to water supply and distribution system operators as the math used is basically the same. The instruction begins with basic instruction in solving for areas and volumes, detention time, flow calculations, hydraulic and organic loading and progresses to specialty areas such as activated sludge and laboratory calculations. The book includes tips for making problem solving and use of calculators easier. Typical state design standards are listed so that problem answers can be compared to accepted values. The book includes many practice problems with answers given in the appendix to help operators become proficient in basic problem solving.
